MN Telsa

Top rated cars for 2014

Minnesota TelsaI was somewhat surprised to see Telsa Model S come out as the top rated car this year. But I do admit I have been intriged for awhile now about Telsa and I genuanly hope the comany does well. Unfortuanly I don’t think I personally will be able to contribute much to their overall success. With this model currently selling at around 90K$, I don’t see any Telsa Modle S purchases for me in the near future.

But with an overall impressinve safety and performance record – and more than 225 miles on a single charge, I think we are moving in the right direction. If they can realize some commercial success with this, others will surly follow and improvements in performance, reliablity and PRICE will surely follow.


For whoever is interested, here is a link to the Consumer Reports for the Top rated autos for 2014.

To quickly summerize:

  • BEST OVERALL: Tesla Model S electric luxury car ($89,650). This technological tour de force, while pricey, is brimming with innovation.
